A Revolution in the Making

Mike Agnich, Mark Dwight

Zazzle and Rickshaw Bagworks are transforming the manufacturing process away from mass manufacturing to local, custom making.

Traditional retail involves guesswork, forecasting, and often times a lot of wastage in inventory and shipping costs. By using technology to innovate across the entire technology stack from visualization to manufacturing operations, Zazzle is transforming the commerce experience for customers from a "buy" model to a "make". Zazzle's platform allows people to customize products and its technology platform allows for the visualization of these products that do not yet exist. Once designed and ordered by the customer, then the product is made, and made locally. Zazzle has a manufacturing facility in San Jose, California; Rickshaw Bagworks is one of Zazzle's partners and produces messenger bags in San Francisco, California.
